The under is 11-4 in Wizards last 15 road games. The over is 4-1 in Trail Blazers last 5 overall. The Wizards are 1-7 ATS in the last 8 meetings.

Randy’s Free Pick

Both teams on the end of a back to back, the Trail Blazers should have the edge at home, where they win by an average of 3.1 points. The Washington Wizards are coming off a subpar week, and having to travel after playing Golden State last night isn't a great schedule spot. The Trail Blazers don't have to travel, which is a nice advantage on the end of a back to back. I'll lay the reasonable chalk with the home team.

Randy’s Pick Portland Trail Blazers -3.5
